First of all we sat outside and could watch the sun set. The service was good but the food was great! I had the Greek Grouper and my hubby had the Blackened Bienville Grouper. Both were delicious . The live band was playing and the atmosphere was perfect. Can't wait to go back.

Sit outside,relax,feed the fish and enjoy a tasty fish meal for a Great sunset experience.the restaurant is typical for the area in that it looks a little ramshackle but this made the food a delightful surprise. Fresh grouper was really good and served with rare vegetables in this area. The service was first class and the price reasonable. There is... More

We decided to eat here after taking the sunset dolphin cruise. The food was amazing! I got the Royal reds. Not being from Alabama, I had never eaten this particular kind of shrimp! All I can say is amazing! They are quite similar to lobster in taste and texture. My husband got the ribeye. It was thick, well trimmed and... More

Long story short....After waiting 3 plus hours for a table to cook our catch of the day and the service being horrible along with overworked unfriendly staff this story tops any story in my history of dining out. Flippers serves free ice-cream to kids after they have eaten. Our children waited in the long line for ice cream. 40 or... More

We're local people that has eaten at Flippers over the years. This evening, my wife ordered scallops and crab claws and I ordered shrimp and crab claws. We told the waitress about our crab claws. They were pretty bad. They must have hammered the claws to get the shells off, The claws were dipped in an unappealing batter, hardly any... More

We to Flippers 3 years ago and the food and service was amazing. We went for lunch this trip and the food was still good but no service. Waitress was wearing a filthy t-shirt and acted as if she hated customers being there. Even getting water was a bother. The food was good but service kinda ruined it. Decided to... More

Great gumbo and really yummy fresh seafood. Steak also was very good and flavorful! My husband and I ordered different items and shared and there was a lot of food to share and enjoy. Nice view of the bay and outdoor seating is plentiful if you are interested. Excellent service and all in all a really nice dining experience!

Perfect spot for the sunset, at the marina. The oysters on the half shell were some of the best I've ever had. There is also a tuna dip served on bread which was phenomenal. The seafood platter which was fried shrimp, clams,oysters, & fish along with fries was incredible. The royal reds are a must have. They're large shrimp that... More

We ordered the seafood platter, chicken Alfredo, seafood gumbo and the Cajun throw down. The gumbo was amazing. It was a nice stop before we went on our Dolphin tour. It was raining and the restaurant was nice. For desert I ordered Flippers Favorite. My husband loved the Cajun Throwdown.

Thank Sarah L
